From Pittsburgh

Made it to the Andy Warhol Museum...one of the spaces on the museum's many floors and rooms was currently exhibiting, "The Downtown Show: The New York Art Scene, 1974-1984." This exhibit presented a range of artists with that 70's-80's distinctive “downtown attitude” toward life and art taking hold in lower Manhattan at the time--Artists, writers, musicians and filmmakers (many of whom blurred and ignored distinctions of genre and medium). A super extensive retrospective, all told. Here are some photos I took before I was asked to stop taking photos (who knew? I was only allowed to photograph the Warhol stuff, apparently).
